Google Home Hub, Amazon Echo, Apple HomePod… There are countless smart speakers and displays to choose from. Any couple who adds one to their registry will need to consider how much they want guests to spend, as well as the device’s size, space and smart assistant.

Google Home Hub is a solid choice for Android users at about $150. Amazon Echo devices can be linked to Amazon accounts, which can make organizing shopping lists easier for Prime members. Meanwhile, you might want to consider an Apple HomePod if you’re in the Apple ecosystem.
